It's a joke at this point.
    I agree with you 110%.

    I gotta say though,. selling something to make a profit is one thing; I think so long as it is at or under retail, that is fair. However, hundreds of bucks over retail? PFFFT. Not cool.

    i have like $800 of cashback sitting in my account waiting for the 60-day period to end, so it does work... it's not a scam.

    and regarding the prices, they are getting ridiculous. but i bought one of them myself that actually is a pretty hard-to-find color, so i guess i can't be hypocritical. i just think sellers are ripping people off, fees or no fees.
    $800 bucks! Girly, you are going to be soooooo happy when they send you your cashback! LOL, I'd be ecstatic! :gi67:
    By the way, I just wanted to say I love Live.com! I've bought products from drugstore.com, computer parts from newegg.com, and a mattress set from overstock.com, and by going through live.com's cashback link, I've saved money at all three sites! I also need a new pair of old skool Adidas kicks (The all white leather Campus shoe!) and I'm going to buy through footlocker's live.com cashback option and save like 18%! Im telling you ladies...anytime you need to buy something online, check and see if it is on live.com's list of stores because the savings really add up!


    Edit to add: I just checked my cashback account and got $162.50 back from Microsoft! WAHOO!!!

    The cashback works, it takes 74 days to be exact. 60 days after you have earned your cash back you might transfer it your paypal account, then you wait 14 days for it to show on your paypal account and you can either use your paypal balance to make more ebay purchases or transfer it to your bank account, which takes another 3 days, sight!!

    I am also very disapointed of the prices of the RM, I was going to buy one and I was too slow and it sold. The prices are so ridiculous, sellers have inflated the price so much that you are pretty much paying more or the same that you would pay if there was no promotion. That is fu**ed up IMO. I dont blame them because the final values fee increased within the last week but they are still taking advantage of us, buyers.

    ^I totally empathize with you sweetie. I myself was considering a Nikki and was particularly excited when I heard of the Live.com 30% promo. However, when I saw the kind of stuff that was going on with the inflated prices that were HUNDREDS of dollars over retail, I said forget it, kwim? It's okay though; there are still some sellers on Ebay, like hautechick for example, who are very honest and sweet and still a very good option to buy your RM bags from.

    Out of curiosity, what color/style were you looking for?

    I was planning on buying a deep red MAM that had a BIN for 350.00 ( I was waiting to get paid and hoping it didn't sell by then ). When my husband told me about the 30% cash back I rushed and could find it on my watch list, of course it was sold.

    I looked up another auctions but all the ones I liked were over 500, I even saw when an auction BIN price was changed from 550 to 700 WTF!!!!

    I also had a MbyMJ in my list so I emailed the seller and offered a reasonable BIN price, she never got back to me because she probably though it was not enough money but at the end her bag did not sell.

    I do feel price has gone up for RM bags due to live.com cashback program. Some are selling and some are not, I guess it really depends on the demand of the bag. Although I really want the MAM Navy but the seller has a 3rd party checkout so Live.com cashback doesn't apply! Boo.
